Summary: A pleasant hike through the forest with some obstructed red rock views.

Challenge Level: Moderate

Hiking Distance: Approximately 3 1/2 miles each way, 7 miles total; but you can hike further if you want

Trailhead Location: The trailhead is located on Long Canyon Road.

Description: This is a nice 7 mile round trip moderate hike through a forest with red rock views. The first 3/4 mile is not shaded and can be very hot in the summer. But once you are in the forest, the shade helps offset the summer heat. With all the growth, it’s sometimes difficult to take the photo you want to. You intersect the Deadman Pass trail about 1 mile in. We hike Long Canyon about 3 .5 miles but you can go further. The trail becomes steeper, however.
